I didn’t get Henry anything for Christmas because I had been working on a photobook compiling every selfie / picture taken of us from 2021, aka our 20th year together. *insert RETCHING sound effects* But I knew that we would have pictures from Xmas and NYE that I’d want to include, therefore, I couldn’t actually get the book printed until this month.
Therefore #2: no Xmas gift for Henry. Big sad.
So then I thought I could just keep it hidden and give it to him for V-Day, except that it was delivered & sitting on the front porch when he came home from work yesterday, in a blatant SHUTTERFLY box.
And I’m a bad actor in situations like this so instead of playing it cool, I wrenched it out of his hands and screamed.
Well, now he just won’t get anything for Valentine’s Day, haha.
DO YOU THINK HE WILL TAKE IT TO WORK AND KEEP IT ON HIS DESK? Yeah probably not.
My favorite part of this was that after I gave it to him and walked away, he said that after the initial warm fuzzies wore off he thought to himself, “Shit, another thoughtful gift that will be lorded over me” and it’s hilarious because I was thinking the same thing as I was making it!
He’ll just have to keep doing projects for me as long as I make him thoughtful gifts, it’ll be a constant passive aggressive cycle until one of us dies, I guess.
WOW ON THAT UPLIFTING NOTE, I’m going back to doing Kpop cardio. Toodleloo my boo.
